Before I begin, allow me to welcome you to our website.  It's our hope that as you look around, you will become better acquainted with the vision and ministry of Living Hope.

My wife and I have been residents of Niagara all of our lives.  My childhood and teen years were spent in the west end of St. Catharines. For the last decade or so my family has living in the community of Beamsville. 

I received my degree in Theology from Haddington House, a Presbyterian Seminary in Charlottetown, PEI.  I was ordained to gospel ministry in March of 2011.  I am very thankful for this call to gospel ministry and the opportunity to minister among God's people in Living Hope, as well as the greater community of Beamsville.

Kristi and I have been blessed with 6 children: Trevor, Camryn, Samuel, Ashley, Ava, and Mattea.  God has been good and has blessed our family abundantly.  The school aged children attend Calvary Christian School in St. Catharines.  We are very thankful for the role the school has played in the growth and development of our children. 

Being a resident of Niagara my whole life, I will continue to involve myself in the community.  I serve as a volunteer for Youth for Christ, Niagara. Our family is also involved in community events in and around Beamsville. 

As you visit our website and come to know us better, I pray that you will also have the desire to join us for Sunday worship.  We'd love to meet you and get to know you.  Visitors are always welcomed in our congregation!
